Chairperson

Dr. Uche Aguwa is an Emergency Medicine physician who completed her residency at SouthPointe Hospital, Cleveland Clinic Health Systems and currently works for The Southeast Permanente Medical Group, TSPMG. 

Since her transplant to Georgia from the state of Ohio, Dr. Aguwa has been an active member of ANPA. Prior to her current position as the Chairperson, she served as the Georgia Chapter Treasurer for a few years.  

In addition to the many Georgia Chapter activities Dr. Aguwa has engineered, she has participated in several National ANPA medical missions to Nigeria and served as the co-leader for the medical branch of the medical mission during a couple of these missions. Also, she continues to participate in other projects at the ANPA National level in coordination with other Chapter personnel.

Proudly programmed and downloaded in Nigeria, Dr. Aguwa enjoys spending time with her family and friends.  She loves sports, arts, theater, music, and is a consumption of spicy delicacies.  One trivia about Dr. Aguwa is that she is the only member of her family that does not eat escargot and has yet to figure out the reason.

One of Dr. Aguwa’s many passions is mentorship, which is evident in her launching of the Chapter Premed Mentorship program.  Some of the roles of participating ANPA GA members in this Mentorship program, include counseling students, providing clinical shadowing experiences and letters of recommendations when appropriate. Members have also presented at Atlanta area schools on Career Day. 

Dr. Aguwa strongly believes that ***together, we can continue to achieve greater things***
